Dr. Wayne Porter was born near Lubec, Maine on July 11, 1941, the son of a bible school teacher and Pastor; Laura Card Porter. Dad was called by Jesus Himself at age 15 when the Lord stood at the foot of His bed. Dad recalls the beauty of the Lord that transformed His heart and life with this divine encounter. The Lord's eyes that blaze like fire forever changed his outlook on religion. From that day on Dad sought a living and powerful relationship with the Lord Himself. This love exchange led to a powerful ministry that influenced many over the 30 years in the 2 churches he pastored with my dear Mother. Dad pastored churches in West Virginia and in Madison Ohio, "Grace Christian Fellowship." Dad earned three degrees during his ministry a B.A TH, M.TH and D.Min.
Dad has a calling to the nations to Father a generation "in a Closer Walk with Thee." His travels have taken him to many lands singing and teaching the anointed truths of the Bible. Perhaps the two people he influenced the most in his ministry were my sister Stacey and I. His faithfulness to God, my Mother, and his family made a lasting impact on our hearts and now impacts his grandchildren. Dad is trusting for a "Caleb anointing" to minister up until his graduation to heaven. I believe his feet have yet to hit the many places the Lord desires to send him. My favorite memories with my Dad were when we went on missionary journeys together... preaching side by side. Ill never forget the presence that filled the room when my Dad sang and preached.
"Lord use this humble man of God and my Mother to raise up a new generation of Jesus lovers who also can gaze into Your eyes and will be forever changed by Your loving presence."
